CNET Asks Do you want a wearable smartphone

first_imgSmartphone design just got taken to another level. Nubia, an associate company to Chinese telecommunications company ZTE, just unveiled the world’s first wearable smart phone at MWC 2019. The smartphone, (or is it a smartwatch?), named the Nubia Alpha, looks like something out of a sci-fi novel, and it’s a first step toward the wearable tech of the future. The design is a bit cumbersome, the gold a bit gaudy, but the execution is commendable. You can make and receive phone calls, take pictures, and decide to control it either with your fingers or a series of hand gestures–all from the water resistant band around your wrist. Check out more details on the design and functionality of it here. Nubia hasn’t announced a release date or set a price, but it has stated the phone will be available for purchase, it’s not just a concept.  The Nubia Alpha looks like either a house arrest bracelet or Batman’s phone CNET Asks 2:47 Tags Now playing: Watch this: Share your voice Comments The Nubia Alpha wraps a phone around your wrist We have seen concepts and prototypes of wearable phones before. And of course, the smartwatch accompaniments to phones, like the Apple Watch, but Nubia seems to be the first in the game to actually sell a standalone wearable phone.

Support can be accessed by visiting Macclesfield Town Hall or Delamere House, Crewe between 9am & 5pm or calling 0300 123 5017, or 0300 123 5025 out of hours. When the night-time temperature is predicted to be below freezing for three nights in a row, local authorities must provide accommodation to anyone sleeping rough. But in Cheshire East, we’ve opted to use the ‘real feel’ temperature. This means we can provide accommodation to individuals for greater periods of time and work with them to prevent them having to go back out on the streets.”17:43Stone MP left meetingTheresa May has arrived to address Tory MPs ahead of tonight’s confidence vote.A banging of desks could be heard from outside committee room 14 in the Palace of Westminster.The corridor outside was swarming with reporters and police as she made her entrance.The “civil war” in the UK is the worst political crisis since 1918, according to historian and political biographer Sir Anthony Seldon.Speaking outside Parliament, Sir Anthony said: “This is the most serious political crisis, arguably since 1918 and the coming of modern democracy.”He predicted that Theresa May would survive tonight’s vote of no confidence with “not a convincing majority”.He said Conservative MPs who have said they will support her won’t all stay true to their word.He added: “This will carry on being bitter and deep for many, many years.
